What Is Media Blasting?
Media blasting is a practice of blasting that utilizes small particles of various abrasives such as crushed glass, walnut shell, corn cob, garnet, coal slag, acrylic, aluminum oxide and steel grit. All of these medias come in different sizes from very fine to coarse. Media blasting is an excellent form of surface preparation, once called sandblasting, and is commonly used for smoothing rough surfaces, adding texture or shape to smooth surfaces and removing rust, paint or other substances.
